audience on a week when president obama made his very first trip from israel since taking office we continue to see more of the same from campaigner in chief. he met with israel's leaders but offered no real solutions for middle east peace. it will take a lot more in a few days to fix the reckless foreign policy of the last now fewer years. he is aware of the challenge. >> i'm meeting none of these challenges will not be easy. ultimately it's not a hard problem. its hard slog to work through all these issues. it's hard. >> sean: aside from hitting the links in tiger woods and paling around with beyonce, it's hard work being the leader of the world. his trip didn't go entirely as planned. it included the burning of american flag and images of obama himself. then there was some car trump when the armored cadillac limo that was supposed to transport the president, that broke down. they put in the wrong fuel and it had to be towed. what would be a speech but without a few hecklers. >> i believe your future is bound to ours. >> sean: with reminders of the week for his failures to address

. >> shepard: we have seen some light-hearted moments i guess you will during president obama's first day in israel. but one of them is not usually a laughing matter. those so-called red lines. remember this at the united nations last year? prime minister netanyahu drew a red line on a cartoon bomb? part of a warning about iran's nuclear program. well, today in israel, the prime minister wasted no time showing the president a different sort of red line. look at this. >> where do you want to start? i would love to take a look. >> following the red line. red line all the time >> bill: i wonder who sent out the blue tie memo. amusing moment between two leaders whose relationship has some observers saying it's kind of tense. and on this day in 1916, albert einstein published his ground-breaking general theory of relativity. it all started about a decade earlier after the 26-year-old genius earned his doctorate. he just developed one of his first major theories focusing on time and space. then he began working on a new concept that included the presence are of gravity. says he came up with it

the israeli press. now president obama takes his charm offensive directly to the israeli people. in a major speech he delivered about the importance of israel and the importance of peace with the palestinians. the audience of students helped him deal with a heckler. >> oh no. >> this is part of the live lyre debate we talked about. this is good. >> i have to say we arranged for that, because it made me feel at home. >> you know i -- i wouldn't feel comfortable if i didn't have at least one heckler. >> the president used the forum to deliver another stern warning to the assad regime in syria next door. >> we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people or the transfer of those weapons to terrorists. the world is watching, we will hold you accountable. >> and he was cheered for his commitment on iran. >> america will do what we must to prevent a nuclear-armed iran. >> earlier in the west bank, president obama met with the palestinian president, mahmoud abbas. only hours after a stark reminder of the region's dangers as militants in gaza fired several rockets into so
. >> big decision to make. eric? >> kerry is in iraq today. president obama returned from his four-day tour of the middle east. the first foreign trip of his second term. first trip to israel as president. some view the trip as a so-called charm offensive. israel and an attempt to thaw the rocky-strained relationship he has with binyamin netanyahu. is that relationship now thawed? will it work? what about iran? joining us as always on sunday mornings, former ambassador john bolton and fox contributor. good morning, ambassador. >> good morning. glad to be with you. >> good to see you, as always. how did he do? how about the relationship between the president and the prime minister? >> i think that the president's trip always had two purposes. one was the public political aspect of the trip to try to repair the very visibly frosty relationship that he had with israel and in his first term. and i think that he largely accomplished that, photo opportunities were great. the -- they had humor, a couple of hugs. really what else could you ask for? but underneath, the second purpose of the trip, i
" is following breaking news out of israeli. president obama will be holding a joint news conference with benjamin netanyahu. following a would closed-door meeting between those two leaders. as the assad regime and syrian rebels accuse each other of launching deadly chemical and launching a deadly chemical attack just hours before the president's arrival. the white house at this point says it cannot con official those claims. this trip to israel is the first for the president. this is a four-day middle east trip. he was greeted by netanyahu and israeli president perez. before leaving the a airport, president obama was shown the israeli air force system which the u.s. helped pay for. he met with president perez and took part in a ceremonial tree planting. >> there is a common vision uniting us. to confirm dangers. to bring closure as soon as possible. >> i reaffirm president perez, as i will throughout my visit, that in this work, the state of israel will have no greater friend than the united states. right now as president meets with prime minister netanyahu, major issues, like syria
to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know that they are getting and obama never talks about the trillion dollars in tax increases starting this year for obamacare. 1.6 and 1.5 is a 3 trillion-dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passes and a never balances because they turn round and spend another -- hundreds of millions of dollars more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. they do more spending with more taxes but with the brian budget does is very interesting for the republican future. it reforms entitlement, protecting everybody over 55 for many changes and makes changes so that younger people will still have these programs. it takes all the welfare programs, 185 different welfare programs and block grants the largest and most expensive ones just as clinton did with aid to families with children. we have this reform of entitlement and reform of these welfare programs and tax reform taking the top rate on individuals to 25%
sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. president obama leads. he arrived in israel. a three-day trip where he will meet with israeli and palestinian leaders. for months, republicans attacked his leadership and cynically said this president doesn't care about one of our strongest allies. but what the world saw today was president obama leading on the world stage. >> as beebee mentioned, this is our fourth meeting. america's support for israel's security is unprecedented and the alliance between our nations has never been stronger. israel's security is guaranteed because it has a great deal on its side, including unwavering support of the united states. we have your back. >> we have your back. doesn't exactly fit the republican's effort to use obama's diplomacy as a battery ram against him. >> on israel, it's never been worse between the united states and israel. >> you skipped israel but you went to the other nations and, by the way, they noticed that you skipped israel. >> they see president obama and new york city the same day netanyahu does and i
states of america, "atem lo levad." [ applause ] >> you are notly alone. >> president barack obama addressed a young audience this week in israel's capital, jerusalem, at its convention center on his first presidential visit to israel. the speech was up-beat, even rousing, but the language measured, even guarded, with state department edits poking through. >> peace is possible. it is possible. [ applause ] >> i'm not saying it's guaranteed. i can't even say that it is more likely than not, but it is possible. i know there must be something exhausting about endless talks about talks and daily controversies and just the grinding status quo. i'm sure there's a temptation just to say, ah, enough, let me focus on my small corner of the world and my family and my job and what i can control. but it's possible. negotiations will be necessary but there's a little secret about where they must lead. twfor two peoples. two states for two peoples. >> question, was president obama's speech to college students in israel and the trip itself designed to reset u.s.- israeli relations that were badly
obama criticizing israel over its treatment of palestinians who live in the west bank, saying they should recognize palestinians' right to self-determination and justice. here is video of president obama arriving in the west bank earlier today, where he met with palestinian leaders. and meanwhile, the president was in israel and two rockets fired from gaza striking the southern's parts. it did not cause much damage and no deaths reported and believed the rockets may have been a show of protest. coming up right here on "america live," colonel of ralph peters will share his thoughts on what he says is the bigger story of what president obama may not have said yesterday about israel. and he is apparently on the same page as charles krauthammer was last night. neither of these men huge fans of president obama when it comes to his policy on israel, but both men heard something new yesterday, something you haven't heard a lot about in the headlines and ralph will be here to explain in just a bit. we also have new developments in the search for truth about benghazi. south carolina se
lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in office. people like harry reid give the gun lobby far too much credit. >> sam, what's your reaction to that? >> they say the same thing, that the nra has trumped that. and the only thing i would add to that is this. we've seen a lot of recent pollings, specifically background checks, and it's universally popular. i don't see any other issue polling at 90% popularity. if you read specific issues it might dip. this is a noncontroversial bill. it would be surprising to me if democrats felt concerned or nervous about voting for it and i think harry reid recognized that and that's why he's going forward with this in the baseline bill. >> according to "the washington post," these individual gun safety measures have overwhelming support with the public. you know, they have 6 in 10 people, 57% support a been on assault weapons, a majority, obviously. 82% think illegal sales should constitute a crime and 91% support background checks at

. >> question, was president obama's speech to college students in israel and the trip itself designed to reset u.s.- israeli relations that were badly strained and president obama's first term? >> yeah, john, and you're right, it's an israeli-u.s. reset, and i think it was a great success. i think the president's speech was outstanding to the young israelis. i think it was full of realism and idealism. what he has done, he has walked away from the idea that israel has to stop building settlements, and as a reality there's not going to be any palestinian state as long as you have the president meeting with netanyahu, lieberman, and those folks in power, but i do think there's been a reset in relations with israel. but john with the whole middle east, look at muslim brotherhood in egypt, hamas, gaza, the jordanian king is in trouble, syria is about to collapse in anarchy. you've got hezbollah in lebanon. i think that whole area is moving the other direction. if i were the president of the united states, i believe what he wants to do and ought to do is get out of dodge. >> eleanor. >> i can't rem
. thank you, pete. >> president obama is on his way to israel for his first visit since becoming president. he left late last night and will land about an hour from now. elizabeth has more. >> the president arriving in israel this morning making his first official visit there since taking office. it's a long-awaited trip with a 3 day agenda that hopefully includes talks of negotiation. the administration has not set expectations too high for the american people white house press secretary jay carney says policy built around the notion that israelis and palestinians need to have direct face to face discussions. many in the united states can't force negotiation or a solution. the u.s. is a player in the process. >> the president will visit israel with a message about the enduring relationship between the united states and israel, about the unshakeable commitment the united states has to israel's security. measured not only in the amount of assistance but in the strong bonds that our people share. >> president obama will meet with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu where he will reiter
and steven cook about president obama's trip to israel. >> if you're going to reach a peace agreement with the israelis, part of their job description of an american mediator is not only to apply honey but to apply vinegar as well. it's part of the job description. but you've got to pick your fights and the reality with obama is that he went after netanyahu on absolutety wrong issue. he demanded a comprehensive freeze, then the president backs down alienating both the israelis and the palestinians and the arabs. >> rose: we conclude with hank greenberg and the a.i.g. story and why he is suing the government on behalf of the stockholders after the government bailed out a.i.g. and paid back the money with interest. >> the fact had to come out what really happened. the so-called accounting scandal turned out toe virally nothing. the corporate governance of the united states changed after enron. boards became more critical of almost anything that everybody was doing but i wanted -- more importantly i wanted the 92,000 people that helped build a.i.g. and all the things they did to make it
of immigrants after the obama administration eagerly blamed the release of detainees included aggravated felons and repeat dui offenders on the sequester apocalypse, it's about time someone had the courage to question the recklessness, the stupidity of this decision. watch this. >> the release of aggravated felons does not rise to the level of something that the secretary of the department of homeland security should know about, what does rise to the level? if you release thousands of people every day? >> we release thousands of people every month. we operate in the system that we had 4 hundred and-- >> you don't blame it on sequestration? dui would be a misdemeanor, right. dui first offense? how about second offense. >> depends on state law. >> how about the states where you relle? did you release any recidivist drunk drivers? >> yes. >> how many? >> i don't have the exact number, but we have released many individuals who had dui offenses. >> repeat offender dui. >> repeat defender dui. >> and request reschedule to move moan around. the nation that you didn't want to rob peter to pay paul. you

there, but when barack obama arrived in israel for the first time as president this week, he had what he called his homework .n hand on the list, healing a political rift with prime minister benjamin netanyahu, winning over a skeptical and gently c, restarting the moribund middle east peace talks in part by appealing to israelis to see it from the palestinian point of iew. >> put yourself in their shoes. look at the world through their eyes. just as israelis built a state in their homeland, palestinians have a right to be a free people in their own land. gwen: but make no mistake, this was an emphatically pro-israel trip, especially when the president talked tough to two of the region's problematical leaders, presidents mahmoud ahmadinejad of iran and bashar .l-assad of syria >> i'm confident that assad will go. it's not a question of if, it's when. and so part of what we have to spend a lot of time thinking about is what's the aftermath of that and how does that work in a way that actually serves the syrian people? gwen: and today he did some hand-holding with the leaders of jordan and
. >> rose: president obama will travel to the middle east this week. it will be his first time visiting since he entered the white house four years ago. he will meet newly reelected prime minister benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem on wednesday. the president has often been criticized for his distance relationship with the israeli leader but many see this visit as a chance to make things better. much is at stake as israel grapples with a nuclear iran and a lagging peace process. joining me, aaron david miller, vice president of woodrow wilson international center for scholars and a former middle east advisor to democratic and republican secretaries state. here in new york, steven cook of the council on foreign relations. i'm pleased to have both of them back on this program. let me begin with you steven what's the hope of this trip? >> well, the hope is at least officially for the president to reset his relationship with the israeli leader and the israeli people. as you pointed out. there's been some difficulty in the relationship between the leaders. there's been rhetoric the way in which
issued a statement saying president obama's ncaa bracket is a shocking failure of leadership. house republican conference put this video on youtube, echoing the same complaint. how dare he. all kinds of congressional republicans, including house speaker john boehner went on twitter insisting obama should stop this outrage of liking sports. get off my lawn! it is march madness, republican style. the first day of spring, the annual opportunity for house republicans to turn over an old leaf they know they shouldn't turn over any more but they can't stop themselves. also clearly it is going to be gonzaga. that does it for us tonight. see you tomorrow night. right now, time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell." have a great evening. >>> tonight, here in washington, we now know that when the president's away, republicans will play the same budget games they play when he's here. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel. >> obama in israel for the first time as president. >> joking with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu that it was good to get from cong
president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu hold a historic news conference in jerusalem. there are lots of conflicting reports today about a possible chemical weapons attack in syria and we are told that will be one of the top issues that we'll hear about right here in the next 50 minutes. and welcome to "america live," i'm megyn kelly. right now, president obama and the israeli prime minister are meeting behind closed doors. we expect to hear them both within the hour. the president's trip comes at a dangerous time for the jewish state and the entire region. to israel's west, questions about the muslim brotherhood and political stability in egypt. and to the east, syria, in the grips of an allout civil war and just 24 hours ago we received reports that chemical weapons may have been used against one side or the other. and of course, there is the constant threat from iran which president obama himself warned could be less than a f having a nuclear weapon. so as we await this historical-making news conference we want to check in with our own leland vittert live with the h
for. what does it say that president obama is proceeding with that nomination despite some of the controversies that emerged when he they floated the trial balloon earlier? >> well, in washington we can tell a lot more about somebody's intent by what they do than what they say. what we've heard a lot said of the white house of late is that they're interested in reaching out to republicans and forming accords and looking to get past some of the partisan bickering that's gone on back and forth. what the president has done today in nominating mr. perez for this job was to throw down the gauntlet to republicans who-- for them, as you say, he is the embodiment of a kind of eralism that they say that the core of what's wrong with the obama administration. there are other people who probably share every bit of mr. perez's views as relates to the use of the law, labor unions, empowering labor unions, fighting against employers who don't want to offer benefits and union access. there's probably somebody who does all of those things, but isn't as controversial as mr. perez, but in ch
, but not the case today. here is obama with someone who he had a prickly if not distant relationship with. >> obama: i did enough the prime minister that they're very good looking young men who clearly got their good looks from their more. >> i could say the same thing of you're daughters. >> michael: when in doubt go to the children and that's what they did to break the ice. you'll remember netanyahu sported romney in the 2012 election. they were very good friends and his support was overt and vocal. let's go to netanyahu. he brought up things--first at the press conference, and here are some of the things he talked about. >> israel remains fully committed to peace and to the solution of two states for two peoples. we extend our hands in peace and in friendship to the palestinian people. i hope that your visit along with the visit of secretary of state kerry will help us turn a page in our relations with the palestinians. >> michael: tom president obama will be going to palestine to meet with palestinian president mahmoud abbas. here is more on at that same press conference. >> obama: i'm pleased
to "weekends with alex witt." let's get to what's happening right now out there. as president obama heads back to the u.s., just about 90 minutes or so from now after the final stop on his mideast trip he visited the fables city of petra, jordan, this morning. and one major topic of discussion for the president, the civil war going on in nearby syria, and the massive number of syrian refugees now in jordan. nbc's peter alexander is traveling with the president and joins us from amman. so peter with a good saturday morning to you. how has this trip gone so far for the president in jordan? >> well, right now, alex, the president's enjoying the end of his trip. punctuating it, as you noted, with a trip to the celebrated archaeological site in this country known as petra. the focus of the trip has largely been on the future. but at least for the last couple hours he's focusing on the middle east past. advisers tell me this is actually a place that president obama added to the itinerary. a destination that he very much wanted to see. sandstorms delayed his travel yesterday. but today that's proving
korea. >>> well, tensions rising over the civil war in syria. just of course as president obama arrives in the region. >> that's right. the president is in israel for meetings with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. accusations by the syrian government and rebels of a chemical weapons attack have now raised new concerns. >> important to note there is no verification that either side used chemical weapons, but a u.s. lawmaker says there is in his words a high probability that the government did or is about to. >> we need that final verification, but given everything we know over the last year and a half i mike rogers intelligence chairman was under the conclusion that they were either positioned for use and ready to do that or in fact have been used. >> now, of course israel concerned about the war in syria just across the northeastern border. and these latest claims may increase pressure on the u.s. to perhaps get more involved in some way or another. >> for the latest on this situation in syria and president obama's middle east trip overall we have live reports now from john king in je
>>> it is time for "end point." cameron russell. >> yesterday, obama was overheard on the mike saying he was glad to escape congress. and i think it is a -- a sign of how polarized and insane our congress is, if he prefers the balancing act of israel and palestine. >> in an interview with jake tapper, so much for the charm offensive. but he also said he didn't take it personally. >> we're talking about how much polarization there is. one issue where there is less is the issue of same-sex marriage, which we are talking about a little bit this morning. the supreme court will hear arguments on tuesday and wednesday of next week on this issue around which now there is a little bit of a media frenzy much everybody lined up. people want to say -- people in public life, politicians, religious figures want to get on record now before these arguments, where they stand. hillary clinton this week, rob partman last week, a real moment. >> a historical, seminole moment where people feel the need to get on the record now. if you make a statement after next week, is that too late? >> i don't
